Wrestling With Crisis Communication: WWE's Scandals and Public Relations Strategies in 2015
author
Steiner, Rebecca J.
abstract
This project examines an intersection of organizational rhetoric, professional wrestling and social media. Professional wrestling, like many other sports, is rich with scandal. Steiner makes a scholarly inquiry into how World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and in particular Seth Rollins, Bill DeMott, and Hulk Hogan handled their respective scandals. These scandals rocked the fans of this popular sport and challenged the popularity of some of the sport’s highest earning wrestlers.
